We picked this from a list of venues. The establishment is quiet, clean, well serviced. The linen is pristine white. The carpets were clean. Spare pillows, blankets AND individually controllable electric under sheet heating. There was no smell of the regular 'air freshener' that so many motels across Australia use to hide the smells of old 'evils'. We did have...

Incredibly helpful and welcoming staff - room was so comfortable and cosy - towels were fluffy and the bed was so comfortable I had one of the best night sleeps I've had for a while. The room was clean and fresh. Enjoyed my stay - big thank you to Kara and team

The room had dirty carpet, dead flies everywhere, dirty dishes, garbage smell coming through air con from overflowing dumpmasters outside, quilts on beds which is not appropriate I think, phone not working, and a dirty pool. Staff were ok so only reason I'm giving 1 star. Really disappointing as our visit to Ballarat was great otherwise.

Staff were very nice, beds were ok. Would not recommend if travelling with children. On highway with lots of road noise. Bathroom was DIRTY. Room in need of updated including furniture which was very old and all scratched. Although staff were welcoming and friendly.

I'm currently staying in a room that is being renovated so I will base my review off my colleagues' 2 bed apartment. Firstly, the reception is very warming and welcoming. The room service staff are great and the whole atmosphere of the Colonial is excellent. The internet is free and fast, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious....

Stayed at this hotel last week as part of a group booking. 5 rooms booked , with clean rooms. However carpets had been cleaned that afternoon and were still damp, with doors needed to be open for ventilation. Average response for a group booking. Apart from this hotel rooms ok but very noisy with busy highway at the front.

All right for a one night stay. External Place could have been better maintained. Room cleanliness was good though. Toiletries, towels, microwave , tv provided. No hairdryer. No electric blanket but able to adjust aircon to heater mode. Convenient 10-15 drive to Sovereign Hill . Reception not very helpful nor available , does the minimum.

This place is comfortable and clean, although a little dated. Not bad for the price. Beds were very comfortable, rooms quite large, no traffic noise and just right for sleeping. I have no complaints. It is a good spot to rest your head.

Terrible! motel was disgusting, something out of a 70s horror film. Mouldy bathrooms, terrible bedding, dirty, scratched furniture dirty walls. Rattly old heating units with no knobs, doubt they are even safe. Worth noting the photos on booking.com is NOT what you get after you have turned up. This motel does not use mattress protectors or pillow protectors! Health hazard!...
